19th century, of familiar form, however, this example is about half the size of those usually encountered. Additionally, it is decorated, further distinguishing it. Just 3 ¾” diameter with a flat back and rounded face-mounted with a copper (previously silvered) circular plate with floral decoration. Integral top with sliding cut-off. The whole encased in the stitched hide. Conical iron spout. Reverse with two iron suspension loops. Complete, with fine stable wear/aging. The only example in this size we have seen. It is equally suitable for primary charge or primer powder, which is more finely milled.
